Celebrating Native American Heritage Month #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth

Adafruit NativeAmericanHeritageMonth blog

Native American Heritage Month is a month long celebration recognizing and honoring the achievements, contributions, sacrifices and legacy of Native Americans. Learn more about Native American Heritage Month here

Here’s some history about Native American Heritage Month from the US Department of the Interior Indian Affairs:

The quest for a national honoring of Native Americans began in the early 20th Century as a private effort. As far back as the late 1970s, Congress has enacted legislation and subsequent presidents have issued annual proclamations designating a day, a week or a month to celebrate and commemorate the nation’s American Indian and Alaska Native heritage. In 2009, Congress passed and the President signed legislation that established the Friday immediately following Thanksgiving Day of each year as “Native American Heritage Day.”

Be sure to join our celebration on the Adafruit Blog every morning Monday through Friday this November, and don’t forget to participate on social media with #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth
